Good benchmark results, bad gaming experience?



i have i7 4790, vega 64, 16gigs of 1600mhz ram powered by thermaltak smart se 730w playing on lg ultrawide 2560x1080@80hz.


as u can see from the pic i get fairly good results when benchmarking, better than 88% of users, but still i get bad performance when gaming on medium high settings and not highest available settings.


i can barely stay in 70s FPS, with huge drops of FPS to 50s, although temps are fine, all drivers are upto date, cpu and gpu not hitting 100% usage in most cases, all set to high performance.


games like


total war warhammer 2, struggle in battles 10 vs 10, fps reaches 40s.

vermintide 2, same issue.

BO4 and BF5, huge FPS drops and instability.

wildlands, huge FPS drops to 50s.

sudden strike, company of heroes, runs shit always.


some games runs good and steady fps like the division, shadow of war, shadow of the tomb raider.


is it my psu? my cpu or my ram?

Ensure all power saving settings are off in both Windows and AMD's GPU utility. Also be sure to update any and all drivers.

Cup usage almost never hits 100% even when it is bottlenecking the computer. Most games have one thread that is loaded much more heavily than others. This means that you can have one thread that is at 100% load and is holding back your performance while only showing up as a fraction of your cpu being used.

RAM, new games want a lot more bandwidth from them than typical DDR3 can provide.
